I only have it flash yellow when I have a Windows Explorer window open and move the mouse point over it.

Nice work Shawn. I pinned Windows Explorer to the taskbar and changed it to open Computer. However, i was unable to change its icon though. Its still the same old Windows Explorer icon showing up. Is there a way to change it?

Hello Dinesh,

You could use this option instead, and use the default Windows Explorer taskbar icon for something else or unpin it.

7Tweaker - Change pinned windows explorer shortcut

Hello everyone,

I'm totally new to these forums but I wanted my pinned windows explorer shortcut on my taskbar to open Computer instead of Libraries.

So I've figured it out and wrote a application for it.

It will open anything you select from the list. (Thanks Brink for the list)

Program is attached.

It'd be nice to see some replies regarding this.

P.S App is written in C# for those who wonder...

7Tweaker is the GUI application that gives you a list of options.

not My Docs but LIbrary Docs

i was wondering if it is possible to target the Library's Documents (preserving the layout as it shows up in library) instead of the normal Documents Location.

even though both point to the same location, i just want to preserve the library drop down layout for Library Documents.

Thanks

Hello Ish, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can change the target path to the one in bold to have it open directly to the Documents Library.

%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries\Documents.library-ms
